4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need an attorney for any excuse, you must work closely with them as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're going to reveal in their mind. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most especially information the other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, each and every time. In fact, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or even be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any sort of crime, it's important so that you can convince the court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

How To Find A Lawyer For Very Little Money?
I Am A Single Mom. I Work Hard But Just Make Enough Money For The Regular Bills. My Ex Is Now Demanding Everyother Week With My 4 Year Old Daughter. We Do Not Have A Court Order In Place For Anything. I Do Not Think My Daughter Is Ready For Such Long Stays Away From Her Mom. She Gets Up Set And Crys Now With 3 Days Everyother Weekend. What Should I Do?
how come you guys don't have a court order??
i know how hard it is to come up with lawyer money, i helped my friend out in this exact situation, and you can try and find lawyers that do "pro bono" cases, meaning completely free.. some lawyers do this as they get an incentive for it, and some do a certain number a year for the state, so you can try and look for those..
or you can try and go with legal aid, not sure what state you're in, but I know like in Texas if you qualify, which it sounds like you would, they can get a lawyer to represent you for free or very very little money...
definitely look into resources your state offers.. and good luck with that...
Legal Custody Issues?
My Brother Has Had His Son For Over A Year. He Has Lived With Him Even Though My Nephew'S Mother Had Legal Custody, Reason Being, She Got Back Into Her Drug Habit. Well After Living With My Brother All This Time (He Lived In Texas Until Recently) And He Moved Back To Oklahoma And Now The Mom Has Sobered Up (Supposedly) And One Day Went And Got My Nephew From School. My Brother Called Her And Said &Quot;Where Are You So I Can Come Pick My Son Up?&Quot; And She Said &Quot;I Think He Should Live With Me, Especially Durring School Days. Would You Like To Come Get Him For The Weekend?&Quot; My Brother Said &Quot;No, I Want To Come Get My Son And Bring Him Home, Because He Lives With Me...?&Quot; And She Said &Quot;Well The Papers Say I Have Custody&Quot; And Those Papers Were From Years Ago. I Know My Brother Needs To Take Her Back To Court, But Isn'T There A Law That States, If You Have The Child For A Certain Amount Of Time And The Other Parent Dosen'T Even Attempt To Come Get The Child And Dosen'T Even Call To Ask For The Child, That The Other Parent Is Then The Custodial Parent?
Your brother isn't too bright. The second his child came to live with him, he should have gone to court, reversed custody and had child support awarded to him. Because he didn't, the child's mother has taken the child back and will probably demand that he pay back child support.
Your brother needs to get a lawyer NOW and go back to court...he should ask for a transfer of custody to him based on the fact that he had the child unofficially for the last year and that it is in the child's best interest to continue that residence with his father AND on the grounds that the child's mother has a problem with drugs, such that she abandoned her child for a good year.
Your brother may or may not get custody back...if he doesn't, that will because he didn't do the right thing (file for custody) at the right time. But even if he doesn't get custody, he should demand random alcohol and drug testing for the mother...and if he does get custody back, then he should have that random drug testing instituted as part of the visitation. Oh, and even if he does get custody back, he will legally owe the child's mother that "child support", which will be a painful and expensive lesson for him.
One last thing...there is no law that states that if the custodial parent abandons the child for a year loses all rights to the child UNLESS the non-custodial parent goes to court to gain custody themselves. Tell your brother he needs a good lawyer now. Good luck and God bless!
What Could I Do At A Law Office?
I'M Seventeen Years Old. I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Knows Something I Could Do At A Law Office At That Age. Either A Job Or Volunteer Work, Doesn'T Matter, But What Would I Need To Be Able To Do It And What Would I Have To Do For The Job/Volunteer Work?
When I managed a major law firm we hired many high school students who worked as apprentices. These students were supplied through the local high schools 'Education to Careers" program, they were paid at a minimum wage, and several even stayed on and later went on to become paralegals, or went onto also attain law degrees (some even got part of their education paid for by the firm). Work that was available was: filing, running errands to the courthouse, sorting mail and delivering it, picking up after conferences, putting postage on outgoing mail, preparing mass mailings, putting up stationary supplies, running deposits to the bank, making copies for staff members, keeping library materials up to date, watering office plants, transporting files around the office to various team members, just to name a few things. You will find that there is always lots to do in a firm to keep busy and it can be very interesting work, however you must be ready to keep whatever information you hear or see completely confidential, and be of good character where you would not cause embarrassment by your actions outside of the firm, as most firms are concerned with their reputations.

Go to the Martindale / Hubble law directory. Martindale.com This is the directory attorneys use to rate each others performance. I have NEVER found a bad attorney when using this as a reference.
Do your brother a favor and get him into rehab NOW even if it was a one time incident. It will play well with the court.

Can You Explain Exactly What Lawyers Do?
Heyy Guys So Apparently I Had The Wrong View On What Lawyers Exactly Do,Can Anyone Describe What Lawyers Do, What Qualities One Should Have To Be A Lawyer, And What Types Of Lawyers Their Are.
Thanks In Advanced:)
Lawyers do a great deal, once they get their degree in law, and pass the bar exam. They have the knowledge and understanding the laws and how to go about them. Even in laws, there are laws to follow up, that average people can't do. There many types of speciality lawyers, criminal,real estate,divorce, disability, injury, law suits, wills, powers of attorneys, for family members, etc. Lawyers are able to get papeer work to the courts, that average people can't,why, you have to have a lawyeer sometimes, is beyond me, but, seems, if you don't,, you get nowhere. That's there job, to file civil action,and go to court, to defend you, or help you. For the best answer,contact your state's attorney office, ask them the same question, I'm sure they will provide you with plenty of information, or where to find it.
